The current effective delivered dose is a quality indicator for continuous renal replacement therapy. Its periodic assessment might enable physicians to deliver personalised treatments. Yet, its quantification as by extracorporeal urea clearance (Cl) is cumbersome and thus often neglected in routine practice. The aim of this in vitro study is to demonstrate the non-inferior effectiveness of assessing the current effective delivered dose using a simpler, cheaper and faster approach based on measurement of fluoride rather than urea extracorporeal Cl.

As a recognised effective and economical agent for dental caries prevention, fluoride has been used in many different fluoridation schemes implemented across the world. Considering the narrow 'dose-ga...
The present investigation demonstrates the preparation of thermally activated sepiolite for effective removal of fluoride via adsorption from an aqueous solution. The thermal treatments on sepiolite w...
Skeletal fluorosis is a chronic metabolic bone disease caused by excessive exposed to fluoride. Recent studies have shown that fluoride causes abnormal bone metabolism through disrupting the expressio...
Trans-synovial solute transport plays a critical role in the clearance of intra-articularly delivered drugs. In this study, we present a computational finite element model of solute transport through ...
To provide current data on average air kerma-area product (P ) and effective dose (E) for non-cardiac interventional fluoroscopy procedures and suggested values of dose coefficients (DC ) for conversi...
The aim of this study is to determine whether an annual application of three (3) fluoride varnish doses over two weeks is at least as effective in reducing cavities as the current semi-ann...
Adequacy of solute clearance makes a profound impact on clinical outcome in maintenance hemodialysis patients. Thus far, guidelines on the target of solute clearance (Kt/V or URR) are base...
This study will use an oral in situ caries model to study remineralization of enamel due to the action of different combinations of fluoride salts delivered from dentifrices.
This study is to evaluate the amount of fluoride in plaque fluid after brushing iwth fluoride dentifrices
Tooth decay is one of the most common chronic infectious disease found in children worldwide and if left untreated, is rapidly progress. Severe tooth decay in children is not only affect c...
Removal of tissue with electrical current delivered via electrodes positioned at the distal end of a catheter. Energy sources are commonly direct current (DC-shock) or alternating current at radiofrequencies (usually 750 kHz). The technique is used most often to ablate the AV junction and/or accessory pathways in order to interrupt AV conduction and produce AV block in the treatment of various tachyarrhythmias.
A technique of brain electric stimulation therapy which uses constant, low current delivered via ELECTRODES placed on various locations on the scalp.
The ratio of the dose that produces toxicity to the dose that produces a clinically desired or effective response.
Calcium fluoride. Occurring in nature as the mineral fluorite or fluorspar. It is the primary source of fluorine and its compounds. Pure calcium fluoride is used as a catalyst in dehydration and dehydrogenation and is used to fluoridate drinking water. (From Merck Index, 11th ed)
The dose amount of poisonous or toxic substance or dose of ionizing radiation required to kill 50% of the tested population.
Nephrology - kidney function
Nephrology is a specialty of medicine and pediatrics that concerns itself with the study of normal kidney function, kidney problems, the treatment of kidney problems and renal replacement therapy (dialysis and kidney transplantation). Systemic conditions...
